Cain, Mr./Mrs. Manford (Golden – 13 July 1976)

Mr. and Mrs. Manford Cain of Granton observed their golden wedding anniversary Saturday afternoon with an open house from 2 to 5 p.m. at Immanuel United Methodist Church in Chili. Approximately 200 well-wishers were in attendance. A noon dinner was served for family members.

Manford Cain and the former Pearl Peoples were married July 13, 1926, at the Presbyterian parsonage in Galena, Il., by the Rev. J. R. McGlade. The bride’s niece, Enid peoples (now Mrs. Oliver Severson of Dodgeville), was their only attendant.

After their marriage, the couple lived in Morrison, Il., where Mr. Cain was employed in a factory. They moved to the Chili area 30 years ago and farmed there for 13 years. After that, Mr. Cain was employed at the Rollohome Corporation in Marshfield and at other jobs before retiring.

The couple moved to Granton approximately nine years ago. Mr. Cain has served as village treasurer for the past seven years, and Mrs. Cain worked for several years as a teacher’s aide in the Granton school system. In past years, she was the Riverside correspondent for the Clark County Press.

Both are members of Immanuel United Methodist Church at Chili and of its King’s couples club. The club presented a program, including a mock wedding, during the open house observance.

They are also members of the Friendly Neighbors Club. Mrs. Cain recently received a Royal Neighbors’ 50-year membership pin; she serves as oracle of Royal Neighbors Fidelity Camp No. 6375.

The Cains are both Illinois natives. He was born in Coleta, and she in White Pigeon. Mrs. Cain moved with her family to Morrison at the age of eight. The couple met when Mr. Cain, who was working in Chicago at the time, visited his brother living in Morrison.

Mr. and Mrs. Cain are parents of four children, Mrs. Al (Betty) Boysen of Naples, Fl., John Cain of Madison, Richard Cain of Lockport, Il., and Mrs. Fred (Laurie) Winkler of rural Granton. All the children and 11 of the grandchildren were present for the anniversary observance. Other family members in attendance included several nieces and nephews from Illinois.
